to their students was if you treat people on earth with mercy, the one if heaven will be merciful to you. that's appreciative knowledge about a tradition. it's the kind of thing that everybody, i think, ought to have, especially at a time when the forces of religious prejudice are loud and want to tell you that what the al-qaeda types are saying about islam is true. if we don't have other knowledge than what we hear on the evening news about a religion or, frankly, religion period these days, then the folks on the evening news win. the second thing that i want to bring up is what i call in "sacred ground "a theology of interfaith cooperation. one of the things i've learned in, you know, 12 or saw years of working in interfaith cooperation and getting a ph.d. in the sociology of religion is that the people who want to make faith a barrier to religion or a bomb of destruction, the religious extremists or folks who want to create divides, they're really good with chapter and verse. they can quote you tip of the tongue where in the bible it says i can't like you or where in the can quran it says i
is the name that i want -- and they just give the name. and he was called good luck. heaven knows what happened, there wasn't much lottery at the time. but i think many nigerians don't feel that -- well, anyway. >> okay. the gentleman off to our left. >> i read your book many years ago. it was called the open sore of the continent. speaking specifically about the execution of king charles and the kind of disparity of the death penalty in nigeria, as compared to the political execution and hundreds of enemies that would languish many years, even though this is not completely outlawed in nigeria, the issue of killings going on in some parts of nigeria, so-called suspects in public places and masses in some places yes, that is one huge block on the nigerian history. it is under military dictatorship, as you remember. a particularly brutal british kind. some people were killed, brutally killed by some of the militants. those in the south. there was absolutely no evidence of what was going on in it. you saw fear in the populace. but only if you organize an injustice, but you do it in the fa
than suspects that he feels the blood of this war, like the blood of abel is crying to heaven. he knows not where he is. he is eager where older man. i love this image. this is an image of james k. polk from late in his presidency. and he basically worked himself to death in support of this war. he worked incredibly hard. you can see how much he aged in the picture, as i showed you earlier, which was taken at the start of the presidency. lincoln adamantly attacks polk. he said that his attacks were ignored largely. i found this was not the case by looking at newspapers. the speech that you see here was widely reprinted across the united states. this is lincoln's first taste of national acclaim and attention. and little did he know, that the president actually was confounded, and here's why. back in the summer of 1847, there was a diplomat named nicholas dress that negotiated with mexico. once he occupied mexico city and captured it, polk began to think that we should take more of mexico than the treaty stipulated. he wanted to see baja, california, in the united states. he wanted to see
and heaven was silent in that moment. so he knew this was wrong. that is part of the contradiction we have to deal with. we the new the system he lived in an perpetuated was so evil so louisiana opened the stage for what became the great battle of the legend of the civil war. the politics were let's rock along. the politics of almost every era are let's rock along so that's what it did but unquestionably the louisiana purchase was a critical step in the security and the size of the country that ultimately on the road to the civil war. >> i guess it took a lot of discipline to cut this book to less than 2,000 pages. they have added things that may be covered by other authors. for instance, the irony of adams and jefferson dolley on the same day and thinking jefferson and his jefferson to lewis and clark to look for the amount of salt a mile high and that's good times rolling on the plains. what is the anecdotes that you most would have liked to put in the book? >> that is a great question. there is a director's cut. [laughter] a cut 70,000 words out of andrew jackson, and i don't know where
brand, unbroken, published in 2010 followed by bill o'reilly's killing lincoln, heaven is for real, walter isaacson's steve jobs, number 4 published in 2011, wild, derek larsson in the garden of beasts, another 2011 title, power of habit, edward klein's at the aging, tina fay's bossy pants, and american sniper was published in january and that was on the list for 17 weeks. sarah weinman, what is wild? >> that was an amazing memoir by a woman who had previously written a novel called for ridge . she described as-she decided on a whim that she would walk the pacific coast, well over a thousand miles and did so with minimal preparation and describe the essentially how doing this long distance walk broke her apart and put her back together again. the big reason why this book was on the best-seller list for so long even though there had been a great deal of attempts, i read it a couple months before publication and certainly understood all the advance height, oprah winfrey decided to revive her book club. she may not have a nationally syndicated show anymore but she does have the oprah

from the time he was elected in 1942 until he died in hospital of emphysema in 1983. heaven -- eleven terms uninterrupted. and he -- that's the longest-running mayor of any city in the united states, and he was very proud of that achievement. he was part of this fantastic political machine which took power away from the republicans in 1921. and the key figure in that was an irishman, dan o'connell. there was four o'connell brothers x there were a couple of corning brothers, the father was one of them, and they founded the new democratic party, and they took the city back from the republicans that had run it since 1899. and when they took it in 1921, they never let go. it's still in power. the succession has been on through the deaths of the two people who were the key perpetuators of the machine. dan died, dan o'connell died in 1977, and erasmus six years later. and after that came tommy whalen who was appointed -- chosen as his successor by corning, and then now jerry jennings succeed ed tommy whalen, who died, who served for ten years and then quit. and then he, he was succeeded in
and capturing machine. we don't do heaven capture because we don't have a legal frame work for holding terrorists, but the cia got in that business, helped along by regime petraeus when he was its director, and, together, those two organizations, jsoc and the cia, have been very, very good at killing or capturing a large number of leaders of al-qaeda and various other allied organizations. that's -- i'm all in favor of that. i'm not against those raids. i'm not gons drone strikes, but i think it's necessary, and i also believe it's insufficient, and the analogy i draw is to the kind of the campaigns we have waged in iraq and afghanistan, and in iraq, we did an excellent job of going after individual bad guys from, really, from the start of the war up until the end. there were notable successes like capturing hussein, and so forth, joint special operations command became this amazing machine conducting the dozen raids a night in iraq, but it was really not sufficient to win the war until we did other things, until we had what would be known as full spectrum killing insurgency which mean
of that--the actual land did your family own? did they own all that? >> guest: no--oh, heavens no. it was primarily public land. when my grandfather started it in 1880, that area was part of the new mexico territory. it was in the area acquired by the united states in the gadsden purchase, just before the civil war, and that ha--had belonged to mexico. the southern pacific railroad wanted to put a line through from new orleans all the way to los angeles, and the best route went through that area, south of the gila river. and congress eventually a--approved the gadsden purchase. mr. gadsden had been sent down to negotiate it. and so in 1880, the land was basically unoccupied, except for the railroad, and if somebody wanted to acquire livestock and put out there and develop water, then it was possible to homestead a certain amount of land around the water that was developed, and the rest of the land could be basically just used. and arizona became a state--when?--in 1914, something like that, and at that point, coming into the union, the state was given a certain amount of state lan
, in fact, he been working on it all a long. mostly behind the scenes. heaven help us, he liked to say, that we'll get a president who knows less about the military than i do. this approach to the military was not just about the economy. in the berlin crisis in 58-59 and in early crisis with korea and vietnam in 1953, 54, the almost straight, the suez crisis in 1956, eisenhower was playing a bigger game for higher stakes. a west point cadet and a young army officer, ike had been a great poker player. indeed, he was so good that he had to give it up. he was taking too much money from his fellow officers and it was hurting his career. he switched to bridge, but he never forgot how to block it with the soviets he bluffed with nuclear weapons. as only a real warrior can, ike hated war. seriously, the great war hero had never been in combat. in world war i had been stateside training troops to his great chagrin, and by world war ii he was too valuable and knew too much to risk getting killed or captured. but he knew war. he went to a lot of battlefields often while they still smell and he s
was at the end of the presidency, but worked on it all along behind the scenes. heaven help us he liked to say when we get a president who knows less about the military than i do. it was not about the economy or saving money. in the berlin crisis and earlier crisis with korea and vietnam in 1953 over the strait in 1954-55 and 1958 in the suez crisis in 1956, he was planning a bigger gain for higher stakes. west point cadet and young army officer, ike was a great poker player, and, indeed, so good, he had to give it up. he was taking too much money from the fellow officers hurting his career. he switched to bridge, but he never forgot how to bluff. the soviets, he bluffed with nuclear weapons. as only a real warrior can, ike hated war. curiously, the great war hero was never in combat. in world war i, he was training troops to his great chagrin, and world war ii, he was too valuable and knew too much to risk getting captured or killed, but he knew war. he went to battlefield when they smelled and saw the carnage. he followed the paths of the german and russian armies seeing not a single buildin
if we should. so heaven forbid i get my philosophy from jurrasic park, but he makes a good point. i come on the side that embryonic stem cells is something we should be doing, including induced stem cells. you prove we don't need embryonic stem cells. that's not true. induced stem cells, i saw a study where they compared the transcription profile, which is the mrna expression from a cell, and induced stem cells and embryonic stem cells simply are not the same, and we would have never known that had we not stud yesterday embryonic stem cells. we have to good side-by-side in doing both at the same time. [inaudible] >> sure. sure. [inaudible] >> our last question. one question i didn't get a chance. i wanted to ask you how you felt about nasa space exploration, the international space station, and the recent expedition and landing of curiosity on mars. how does that play into some of the ideas that you have, if at all, and what are you looking forward to seeing in the next couple of years that you think would be beneficial to not only the country but -- >> boy, that's a great question. you
of millions hung in the balance, and heaven was silent in that awful moment. so he, he knew this was wrong. he knew it. and i think that's part of the tragedy and part of the contradiction we have to deal with. the author of the declaration of independence knew that the system he lived with and perpetuated was so evil. so louisiana opened up this, the stage for what became the great battles that led to the civil war. and the, and the politics of the time were let's rock along. the politics of almost every era are let's rock along. and so that was what it did. but unquestionably, louisiana purchase was a critical step not only to the security and size of the country, but ultimate hi on the road -- ultimately on the road to the civil war. >> i guess it took a lot of discipline to cut this book to less than 2,000 pages. [laughter] and you probably consciously omitted things that have been covered by other authors. for instance, the irony of adams and jefferson dying on the same day and adams thinking jefferson was still alive, and his caution to lewis and clark to look for a mountain of salt -- >
goodluck, heaven knows what happened in his parental home, but wasn't much lottery at the time. i think there's many nye jeerans -- nigerians don't feel that -- well. >> gentlemen off to our left, seven rows back. >> i read your book many years ago, called "the hope and soul on the continent" and speaking specifically about your execution of kensor in the kind of disparity of the death penalty in nigeria was compared to the political execution of kensara as opposed to the enemies that were languishing many years. i wanted to speak on -- you know the death penalty is not, i don't think, completely outlawed in nigeria. speaking on the judicial killings that go on by the authorities in some part, nigeria in particular, in northeast, so-called suspects executed in public places in masses in some cases. >> yeah. that's one huge blot on the nigerian -- nigeria. it is under different leadership, as you remember, and a particularrally brutal british -- this kangaroo trial, messy period in the region, some kids were killed. brutally killed by -- by some of the militants, in the south, but there
is greater than the heavens. let your spirit move our lawmakers to do your will. teach them valuable lessons from hardships and adversities, as they work to be worthy of the sacrifices of those who have already given so much for freedom. lift them from the darkness of hopelessness so that they may take steps toward your light. may your presence and grace bring comfort, as you inspire them to choose what is right and just. may they take the tide that leads to fortune rather than risk a national voyage bound in shallows and in miseries. we pray in your powerful name. amen. the president pro tempore: please join me in reciting the pledge of allegiance to the flag. i pledge allegiance to the flag of the united states of america and to the republic for which it stands, one nation under god, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all. the president pro tempore: under the previous order, the leadership time is reserved. the majority leader. mr. reid: following leader remarks, we'll be in a period of morning business with senators permitted to speak for up to tufplts ten minutes each. discussion
feels the blood of this or that the blood of abel crying to heaven against him. he knows not where he is. he's bewildered, compounded and complex man. about this and manage of polk from late in his presidency. polk basically worked himself to death in support of this war. he worked incredibly hard yet you can see how much she's aged to the picture taken at the start of his presidency. so lincoln adamantly attacks spoke. most scholars who have looked at lincoln spot resolutions have said these attacks were gored. i found by looking at newspapers this is is not the case and attack the spot resolutions of the speech you see here was widely reprinted across the united states. this is lincoln's first taste of national acclaim and attention. little did lincoln know, but the president was confounded and here was why. back in the summer of 1847, polk dispatched nicholas trace to negotiate a mexico. the one scott occupied mexico city and captured mexico city, polk began to think in fact we should take more of mexico then the treaty stipulated. polk wanted to sleep ha ha, california in the united
'll get to heaven eventually. it's hopeful, but it seems increasingly rare. the culture war seems to be invading all spaces. >> guest: do you think that it's in reality rare, or do you think it's just more of what we see in the media reflects the kind of sound bitish, sharp division -- >> host: no, i think in the public culture it's rare, and in reality america's a very nice place. i watched focus groups in the new jersey a few years ago, and there was a evangelical mother and a lesbian mother in civil union, and they were working really hard to try to figure out a way where everyone could be okay. it's not always easy, but it was very moving to watch them in the same room. i think that's the great part of america. we have to go for a break, but we'll be right back and continue this conversation, debating same-sex marriage. >> guest: great. >> on the go?

of 2008 we had a big snowstorm. heaven forbid, you don't use salt in seattle because that's bad for the environment. particularly, they said, it was bad for puget sound. it's a saltwater estuary. so adding a little bit of salt to a saltwater estuary, probably okay. the salmon will be all right. [laughter] instead, instead you take plows, and you pack down the snow and sprinkle sand on top. now, how many of you if here think that strategy will hurt? it did not. in fact, what we had was ice potholes where you'd be driving on top of this ice rink with sand on top, and potholes would form in the ice, so you would be going up and down like -- it was the boris thing i've -- worst thing i've ever seen. and that's actually worse for the environment. sand is one of the things you want to keep out of streams because sand will get woo the gills of -- will get into the gills of fish. well, that didn't work out well. mayor greg nichols was bounced in the primary and was replaced by a guy who immediately fixed the problem by just cutting out road lanes and put anything bicycle lanes instead,
